Nurses' perspectives on parental involvement in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) during the COVID-19 pandemic
The study aimed to explore nurses' perspectives on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on parental involvement in the neonatal intensive care unit. Thirty-five neonatal nurses from an academic hospital (n=12), private hospital (n=11), and tertiary hospital (n=12) were recruited to take part in the study. The mean age was 45 years
The data collection tool used to gather nurses’ perspectives on the impact of COVID-19 on parental involvement in NICUs was a self-developed survey, although it was compiled from various academic sources and scientific literature. The survey collected quantitative and qualitative data. Quantitative data were analysed descriptively and inferentially using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences v28, while qualitative data were analysed using qualitative content analysis.
Quantitative dataset contains a table with the demographics of the nurses as well as parental visitation regulations in the neonatal intensive care unit across the three hospitals, amongst others. The quantitative excel spreadsheet contains the variables in a statistical manner and outlines significant variables. The qualitative data contains the codes and descriptions.
